The Oakland Raiders are in the midst of one of the franchises most horrific stretches of football having lost 4 straight games surrendering at least 34 points in each of those games being outscored 169-79. So it would come as no suprirse that emotions were running high when they were getting pumped by the Bengals right out of the gates following behind 24-0 in the 1st half. During the second half when any hopes of a miraculous comeback were all but squashed the woeful defensive unit decided to take some of it’s anger out on the Bengals offense resulting in brawl that resulted in three players being tossed from the game Cincy’s Andrew Withworth & Oakland’s Lamarr Houston + Tommy Kelley coming off the bench to get involved in the altercation. Below is a video of what transpired on the field: The brawl started due to Lammar Houston wrapping up Andy Dalton then throwing him into ground clearly after the whistle had been blown several times. I don’t blame the Bengals one bit for coming to the defense of their QB. The Raiders are a bunch of fools and have been one of the most undisciplined teams in the NFL over the past number of years so it comes as no shock they would have one of their players pull of a stunt like this. The only defense for Houston could be that he didn’t have enough time to slow down his momentum of running at the QB after the whistle had blown. Something I could sometimes buy but if that were the case how do you explain his cocky little dance after?You don’t just another example proving why the Raiders are an atrocious franchise one of the worst in the NFL. Despite cleaning house last off season starting fresh with new management and first year head coach Dennis Allen they have a long way to go. I don’t care how many injuries you have and how many games in a row you lose allowing this many points in a 4 game span has got to be one of the worst of all time. The defense should calm down and start making plays when it actually matters.Knowing Sir Goodell and the stiff punishments he hands out Houston and Kelly who came off the bench should be hearing from him shortly.

Bengals fans had this game circled on their calendar. For some, this was the game when we could show Palmer what a dumb decision he made by choosing to sit out and eventually join the Raiders over staying in Cincinnati and playing. For others, they wanted to boo the guy for the way he quit. Others just hoped the Bengals could continue their dominance in the last few weeks with...
The Raiders were still smoldering after an official's inadvertent whistle erased what could have been a 25-yard touchdown return of a fumble by Tyvon Branch. Yes, the Raiders acknowledged their role in a 34-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, and the fact that sleepwalking through a 24-0 first half was ultimately the reason for their demise. Yet a team struggling as much as...
In light of 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick taking the NFL by storm the past week, it seems reasonable that the Raiders might consider taking a look at second-year quarterback Terrelle Pryor at some point.

The Bengals offensive tackle was there because Raiders defensive tackle Lamarr Houston had hit Andy Dalton late, and Whitworth took exception. Words were exchanged, then Houston lunged at Whitworth, then all sorts of heck broke loose...
